A New Way to Interact With Robots
This thesis presents a new and portable robot control architecture for a multimodal user interface for interactive conversations with a robot. Multimodal user interfaces allow the robot to interact with more than one person ...
HMM-Based Techniques for Intent Recognition in a Simulated Realistic Naval Environment
Activity recognition aims to recognize the actions of one or more agents froma series of observations. Intent recognition is an area of research dedicated toautomatically detecting and predicting the intentions of agents ...
Multi-Modal Landmark Detection and Tracking for Odometry Estimation in Degraded Visual Environments
This thesis focuses on the development of a multi-modal odometry estimation framework for the purpose of robot localization and mapping in visually degraded environments. Visual and depth information are encoded at the ...
Socially-Aware Navigation Planner Using Models of Human-Human Interaction
A real-time socially-aware navigation planner helps a mobile robot to navigate alongside humans in a socially acceptable manner. This navigation planner is a modification of nav_core package of Robot Operating System (ROS), ...
Dynamic Path Planning and Replanning for Mobile Robot Team Using RRT*
It is necessary for a mobile robot to be able to efficiently plan a path from itsstarting or current location to a desired goal location. This is a trivial task when theenvironment is static. However, the operational ...
Applications and Evaluation of a Motion Flight Simulator
This dissertation presents a collection of discoveries and results obtained in assembling and utilizing a high-fidelity flight simulation system. Two users, secured with a seatbelt and harness, can experience the simulation ...
